Activity Instructions

Students will all stand in a line in front of the letter cards and the mat. The teacher will give students a word. One student at a time will place the letter down on the mat to spell out the word. If the student placing a letter gets it incorrect that student is out. Continue through the spelling list until you get a winner.

For example: Students are in a line. The teacher gives the word “Apple” student number 1 will go up and place an A in the first box. Student number 2 will place a P in the second box. Student number 3 will place another P in the third box. Continue down the line spelling the word. If a student places an incorrect letter, he or she sits down, and then other students continue to spell the word.
